What do our volunteers say?
The ministry, begun by Catholics and inspired by Mother Teresa, cherishes each person as a child of God while welcoming those of any faith to join us in serving.
Volunteers serve in our home in downtown Lansing doing whatever is needed including:
- Helping in the office
- Providing personal care and presence to our guests
No special skills are needed to take advantage of our volunteering opportunities. An ability to embrace the mission, commitment to working as part of a group, and openness to learning and to growing in selfless service are necessary.
